contractors to review post attack footage of the annex where two ex navy seals were killed. the contractors found that the impact angles and fragmentation patterns of the mortar damage revealed at least two mortar teams using gps devices to score direct hits on their first shots. the intelligence officials who already believed the attacks to be coordinated and professional used these outside assessments internally to rebut the rice narrative and the very next day, the nation's top counterterrorism official ended the dispute for good. >> certainly on that particular question i would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> the state department disclosed that its own internal panel reviewing the genie episode, the accountability review board or arb, met for the first time today, chairing the board is thomas pickerring and among its members, is the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen. the arb is supposed to report its findings to secretary of state clinton within 60 days time unless pickerring requests more time.
